Each year generous farmers, growers and packers donate over millions pounds of fresh produce and local grocery stores participate in our Grocery Rescue Program.

In the last year, we are honored and proud to partner with the following foundations:

tol2012Ron Gallo and Charles Slosser of the Santa Barbara Foundation, Tom and Susan Parker and Pam Lewis of the Hutton Parker Foundation were honored for their steadfast support of our mission.

“In its 30 years, the Foodbank has been a leader in the eradication of hunger. They should be commended, not just for changing the landscape of how we deal with food insecurity, but also for their efforts to provide proper nutrition for all residents of this county.”
– Ron Gallo, President & CEO of Santa Barbara Foundation

“Imagine our county with no Foodbank. No one there to salvage food that would be throw away. No one there to safely source, store and distribute nutritious food to 290 local service agencies and programs 3/4 of whom rely on the Foodbank as their sole source of food. The Foodbank represents a great reasons for us to want to live in the county, because we want everyone to be healthy and have enough to eat.”
– Tom Parker, President, Hutton Parker Foundation
